My local wheel guru can turn up similar, providing they have a sample to work from.
Any good engineering shop possibly could ?
Finding a sample is probably the tricky bit ...

Looks like that page is disappearing.
Might mean he is no longer in that business ?

Hello everyone
 I learned about a person with a 4 HP circa 1918 not far from my home.  Iím going to take the dimensions of the hubs and can be refabricate the front and the back but remaining faithful to the original meaning balls and not bearings . It is certainly more expensive but also more authentic. We will see the quote!!!
Have a good evening to all

GREAT!

Are the 4hp hubs not the same as the 2-3/4 hubs? If they are the same, please post the quote and let him know I would like to have a set made also. THANK YOU.
